    Take care grocery shopping and ordering takeout food

    I had a feeling this might happen and now here we are in my county where grocery store clerks and food handlers have been diagnosed with covid-19.

    Coronavirus: 5 Food Handlers Test Positive In San Diego County

    SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CA — The number of confirmed coronavirus cases have continued to climb in San Diego County, including five food handlers who have tested positive for COVID-19.

    One grocery store employee and four restaurant employees have been diagnosed with COVID-19, county health officials announced Sunday.

    The grocery store employee who tested positive works at an Albertsons store in Escondido, Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said. He noted that the store did the "right thing" by closing, alerting environmental health officials, following sanitation protocols, and then re-opening to customers.

    I'm sure you think that you have an intelligent point to make.

    While safer than dining out, the take out people are handling money, including coins that can old the live virus for days. Even if they are wearing gloves, once such a coin is touched the glove surface is now contaminated. Everything that employee now touches - change, sacks, place bag holding napkins, condiments, food packaging, all potentially is contaminated. if there is ANY contact with food packaging handled by food preparers - or any same surface - the fold also can be contaminated, meaning putting covid-19 in your mouth.

    Those terrified of covid-19 really should be isolated alone in their home.

    You knew this was bound to happen.......we get a national and a local paper delivered, shop for supplies when necessary, pick up mail at the box at the end of the driveway......there is no way to control who touches what and what their precautions are.....

    Bad joke. I was mocking an attitude I see among right wingers here but I've never seen you have.

    More on grocery store workers throughout S. CAL. Escondido is a community just north of San Diego.

    "An Escondido Albertsons worker tested positive for COVID-19 this week, and the local grocery union president said about a dozen union members have contracted the virus throughout Southern California."

    If it's happening here, it's happening in your community as well. Please use caution.

    I personally take this virus very seriously. I had surgery last week and I need another surgery and am holding off. Both my husband and myself are in the high risk group.

    My nephew was seriously suffering from the infection.

    Your concession is noted.
